Over the past few years, we’ve had the pleasure of making the learning lives of thousands of employees much more enjoyable. Our Academy LMS – the #1 LMS in the world! – is built from the ground-up to be a delightful, engaging place for learners; gamification functionality makes learning exciting, and the social features encourage a deeper understanding of the learning content.
Our Academy LMS has been successfully used by organisations all over the world, and we’re proud to have made a huge positive impact on the lives of so many people.
As a company on a mission to provide learning to 10% of the world’s population in the next 10 years, we’re proud that our Academy LMS has been adopted by so many companies the world over and has made a huge positive impact on the lives of so many people.
That’s why we’re so excited to announce that we have just taken on our very first Canadian client!
Erickson Coaching International is the leading Canadian coaching and training organisation with over 40,000 graduates in over 36 countries. They have been pioneering transformational coach training and business leadership programmes since 1980, and we’re chuffed to bits that they love our Academy LMS enough to offer it to their students!
As Erickson is focused on Higher Education, we’re going to be working closely with them to develop some specific education-focused features for the Academy LMS that will secure ever-higher levels of engagement and motivation.
Our Managing Director, Juliette Denny, said: “Awesome! Erickson’s New Online Academy for The Art & Science of Coaching is a thrilling opportunity. We are excited to be focusing on the fast-growing Higher Education sector with a prestigious brand such as Erickson and are looking forward to making it a tremendous success!”
Erickson will be utilising our gamification features on the Academy LMS – which was also ranked the #1 Gamified LMS in the world in 2014! – to apply a quest-like structure to their training to make the learning process more engaging and fun for students. Quests will be assigned for exercises, assignments and learning challenges to encourage learners to remain excited about the learning and progress further. Rewards like badges and points will motivate students, and Erickson will also be encouraging students to use reflective journaling techniques and blogging to reinforce the learning content.
Marilyn Atkinson, Founder of Erickson said: “We’re very excited about our partnership with Growth. The breadth of the tools and offerings of its Academy LMS mean we can really enrich the learning environment for our students. We’re especially excited about the opportunity to offer interactive technologies which make the entire learning process more engaging and enjoyable.”
To celebrate the launch of the New Online Academy, Erickson and Growth Engineering will be joint-hosting an official launch event at one of Vancouver’s hot new venues, Steel Toad Brewpub and Dining Hall. Alumni, current students and graduates, partners, and trainers will gather to reconnect with the community, preview the New Online Academy, find out more about the technology behind the Academy and hear the latest updates from Erickson Coaching International on February 24, 2015.
